HUMAX FVP-4000T 500 GB Freeview Play HD TV Recorder – Mocha, Slow to boot but very responsive


Controller to big and very sluggish in linking with box.

Gradual to boot originally but is effective flawlessly. Really responsive and quick to use. Recordings are wonderful quality and sequence report attribute is pretty handy. Didn’t hook up it to the world-wide-web as i use chromecast rather.

Arrived forward of time and perfectly packaged. The technician who equipped it for me experienced no concept that it was a refurbished unit.

“two have been fine and one, didn’t install the none didgi channels., an excellent product”

Fantastic merchandise, simple to set up, bough so i could history at home, and transfer to holiday getaway house at weekends. Best really effortless to disconnect and reconnect.

Simple to established up works extremely perfectly.

Excellent obtain , simple to operate,.

Am worried i experienced to return this recorder as it wouldn’t put in none didgi channels experimented with fairly a couple of instances but didn’t take care of it, though i am making use of two humax ones at instant which are quite previous now with no issues,.

Initially merchandise sent was incorrect design.

Looks model new, eight working day supply day, sent in three times are unable to get much better than that.

Great supply provider of a wonderful merchandise.

I am pretty pleased with this totally free watch box. It truly is so quick to use, quick to install. It was shipped in double brief time, effectively packaged.

Uncomplicated to use, just as superior as my virgin box. The refurbished box is a1 with easy directions on how to put in.

Humax digital recorder (refurb. ) i have purchased, two have been good and just one, i experienced to ask for a alternative. Commonly, fantastic price for the selling price.

Wholly satisfied with this decoder/recorder. Wi-fi link works perfectly properly.

Great products at a excellent price tag.

This merchandise arrived a working day ahead of the scheduled delivery, perfectly packaged and undamaged in transit. Although it was in a simple white box (as a refurbished product), it contained all related bits (distant, hdmi guide, antenna connector, ethernet connector, instruction booklet and brief established up manual, and many others. Although i’ve only experienced it put in and working for about a 7 days, all looks to be in great doing work buy and i am completely glad so far.

I not only seems to be very good it does all the things as explained.

Only had it a short although, but so significantly so very good, really good value.

It is these kinds of a preserving on my virginmedia box. And i get all the stations i employed to and a image of the exact high-quality.

Incredibly content, fantastic price tag, arrived previously than predicted, brilliant provider.

    The only gripe is the very small and feint power indicator. I certainly like being able to record multi channels atthe same time.

      Everything works well but it takes a bit of time to set up and get the most out of it. Wifi conne4cted very well and i haven’t bothered to connect to router by cable. It takes a little time to register the on demand stations but it only has to be done once and then all the freeview play features are available. The three tuners give a lot of scope for recording. This is my second humax pvr and i have been very satisfied with both of them.

    The product arrived earlier than advised. The price was very competitive, even cheaper than humax direct. Only having this product a few days i cannot give an honest review, if after the guarantee runs out and the recorder is still operational then i will, if asked, review honestly. My only review can say it is noisy, humming quite loudly when recording. The instructions are reasonable good but i had to figure a few things out for myself, ie you need to go onto media menu to configure it, it wouldn’t connect to my internet despite having my phone, tablet and fire stick all connected the same way in the same room but for me this isn’t important.

    Bought to replace an old set-top box. We are very pleased with this box. It was very quick and easy to set up, even connecting to the wifi was very easy and straightforward. The menus and tv guide functions respond very quickly and are very intuitive. Picture quality using hdmi cable is first class. Over-all, we are very pleased with no negative points that we’ve found.

      Sometimes video ‘freezes’ especially when the programme has been ‘paused’ only cure seems to be to switch machine off then on again. Otherwise very good and now able to access itv hub etc. However if ‘video freezing’ continues to be a problem i may have to consider returning item.

    Decided to take a chance on buying one of these refurbished boxes despite the reviews about the performance of the ‘new’ ones. Best £100 i could have spent, you’d never know that it’s not a new unit except for it coming in a plain white box. Other than that, everything is supplied that you would have normally received and is in ‘as new’ condition. In terms of performance, i can’t understand the negativity.Yes there’s some slight delay when moving channels/fields but it’s only two or three seconds at most. It offers a wealth of choice and on the whole is easy to use. My only reason for four stars on ease of use is just because there’s such a lot to learn. Picture and sound quality are top notch. If you’re thinking of buying one.

    Three tuners so no problem recording programmes when three things that you want to watch that evening come along at once – which they often do. Very handy to for watching programmes on ‘catchup’ as you don’t have to fiddle about with an app searching for the programme you want to catch up on – this unit takes you straight there from the tv guide – at least where bbc iplayer is concerned. Sadly i don’t seem able to sign in to itv hub on this unit though – the remote doesn’t ‘engage’ – a bit of a glitch there. To anyone worried about noise, this unit makes the teeniest weeny mosquito noise – hardly discernible. Over all, recommended for the price. Additional: the remote control is indeed ‘clunky’. Perhaps the most unresponsive and illogical remote i have ever encountered. Surely ‘record this programme’ should be above ‘record whole series’ and not the other way round and so on?.Worth putting up with it as the unit has three tuners i suppose.

    I’ve only had this for a few days but it was delivered very quickly and it seems like a good device. It was easy enough to setup, the instruction book printing was a bit feint but there wasn’t a lot of need for it if you have had a set top box before. Time will tell on reliability but a previous humax box was very good, so no reason to be concerned. Also it was £10 cheaper than a recon box direct from humax.

    This is our second 4000t, the first is now passed on to family member, and this seems newer, with a different remote control design. Would not know this was refurbished item. First class quality and with all the attachments & instructions. Arrived as described and on time. It is easy to use and setup, though it did not help that i kept entering the wrong network password. If the netflix or on-demand buttons were pressed before the network connected it seemed to hang the software so unplug and restart sorted that out. Records as it should do and the epg is good. Looking forward to working with this device.

    Purchased to replace an identical existing humax pvr which developed an intermittent fault, could not find a reasonably priced repair shop so decided to purchase this refurbished unit. Works perfectly so am able to once again fast forward all the hordes of adverts. Would certainly recommend that everyone should purchase one. Cheeky request as you refurbish sets is there a market for sets like mine which are certainly a shame to throw away.

    I was really looking forward to using this as we already own another humax box which has been great over the years. Unfortunately this unit would not tune in or pick up a signal so weve plugged our old box back in for now and returning for a refund. A big waste of timei wont be buying from anything refurbed from this seller again.
